Relax, Tribe Fans. We Are Going To Be Just Fine.

The Cleveland Indians have only just started their season, and I want Tribe fans to enjoy the ride as it happens.

Relax, Tribe Fans. We Are Going To Be Just Fine.

Far too often I've been seeing a lot of panicking going on regarding the Indians. People on social media with hot takes left and right, up and down, side to side, and in a 360 degree angle. Pretty much anywhere and everywhere you look, you can find some kind of negativity or panic loaded remark being made.

I have only a couple words to sum up what this article is going to be about: please calm down. If Corey Kluber has a bad game, people start saying he's a trash pitcher. If our offense is struggling, suddenly we suck. If a hitter strikes out, that hitter shouldn't be on the team anymore. Now, I'm not talking to the people that get frustrated and say minor things stating their annoyance. I'm talking to the people that have insanely huge freak outs over minor circumstances. See what I did there?

Ever since the season started, I have had people on Twitter tweeting me about how bad the Indians are, how their year is over, etc. In April. I repeat, in April. Now how silly does that sound? The Tribe ended April with a winning record and first place. Yet at the beginning of April I already had people telling me they were horrible and that the year was already over just as it had begun.

I don't see this strictly on social media, either. Some days I'll walk into work after a loss and have coworkers telling me how disappointing the Indians are and how they need to step up their game. Give me a break! This is the defending AL champions you're talking about, and a team that just went to the World Series last year.

I'm not writing this article to be negative, and I'm not trying to yell at anyone or call anyone out. I just simply want Indians fans to take a deep breath and understand that this year has just begun. We have many months to go. There's no way of knowing what's to come, so relax and enjoy the ride!

We're going to be just fine.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
